Everything about this has, to me, a flavor of authenticity. While there is a bit of falling in love and a happily-for-now ending, that isn’t what I liked best. My favorite part in the whole thing was when Davi and Jon talked about the books they loved. Maybe my bias is that I’m a book enthusiast myself, or maybe it’s that I was finally reading a story where the characters had more in common than finding each other hot. Either way, that part rang so true to me that I almost cheered.
Besides that, I loved the university setting, the distinctly Jewish flare, and the few side characters. All of those elements were so well-drawn and brought me right into the story. If I have any complaints, it’s that we may never get to revisit this place. I’ll have to settle for re-reading it, perhaps right on the eighth night itself.
For a authentic detail, humor and heart, and sweet holiday fun, this gets 5 stars.
Davi has a crush on professor Sol Gerber. But Dr. Gerber has a rule about students. Davi comes up with a plan to woo Dr. Gerber through a series of eight Hanukkah gifts, which he leaves in the professor’s office each day. But Dr. Gerber icomes up with his own plan, and has his research assistant, Jon pick up the gifts each day while he’s at a conference. With Dr. Gerber and his secretary scheming to bring the Davi and Jon together, the unique and increasingly naughty gifts begin to work their charm.
The story is a bit contrived, but very cute, and the connection that Davi and Jon make is deeper than the simple physical attraction one might expect from a short piece. A fun holiday read.
A sweet and short read. The story has an omni narrative approach involving the feelings and thoughts of Heather, Davi's best friend, Dr. Gerber, Davi and Jon and their part with Davi's plan. As with PS, I thought the main character, Davi was a bit fickle but when it came down to choices and what the heart wants I thought it worked out very well with the characters.
I also liked that the book made me curious enough to look up some interesting facts. I wasn't aware of what a pinwheel in BDSM was. When it was mentioned I was thinking along the lines of a child's toy.
